Located on Avenida Alcalde Elósegui, in the Alto de Miracruz area of San Sebastián, Arzak started out as a small bistro. Over the years, changes and developments have taken place not only in the kitchen, but also in the dining room. What was once a small family home has been renovated and converted into a modern, elegant, and welcoming restaurant.
For a few years, Arzak's cuisine was simultaneously acclaimed and misunderstood. The restaurant received its first Michelin star in 1972, and its second one 6 years later. In 1989, Arzak became the first Spanish restaurant to have 3 Michelin stars.
